As most of my scripts have to run under Win32, I don't use glob :) (Note: glob() is also available under Win32, but another process must be started that reads the directory in, not really elegant IMO). I use the
DIR = opendir( "$area" ) or die "Can't read '$area' : $!"; @files = readdir( DIR ) or die "Error reading from '$area' : $!"; closedir( DIR ); # Don't care about errors here
combo. If you simply want to process every file in a directory, instead of   @files = readdir(DIR) you could use
while ($file = readdir(DIR)) { ... do your stuff to $file ... }

The drawback of readdir() against glob() is of course, that you have to descend through the directories yourself if you want recursive processing, but I like programs more that give the user some feedback (like painting a dot for each directory traversed as appropriate) ...
